One of my gallery directors and I really want to create a social media platform called “Worth Noting.” It would include all the items that we are embarrassed to deem important enough for a tweet, but those that at least merit a nod. Until then, everything notable can continue to live in my notebooks. I have hundreds. At the risk of sounding narcissistic, I must admit I revisit the oldies but goodies every once in a while. This activity is highly recommended, particularly if you are having a creative or professional block. Can you imagine, my collection includes every note from every thesis and brief ever written in my last life? If nothing more, these notebook reunions remind me I was really smart before birthing children. Go figure. There remains something to be said for putting pen to paper after all. I mean, who could get any gratification from reviewing old e-mails and Evernotes? For that matter, who would want to spend valuable time doing it? Anywho, enough about me…read on to peek inside waaay more interesting notebooks such as Jean-Michel Basquiat’s, the best available for purchase, top contemporary artists’ and fashion designers’, Presage Fashion Forecast, and contemporary art that evokes notebooks.
